In the Community

In the Community

Air Canada has a proud history of supporting organizations that focus on improving the lives of Canadians. Our support of community organizations has made Air Canada an active participant in their efforts and in their successes.

Our In The Community support is twofold:

  1. We invest in your community's social fabric by supporting charitable organizations that help children and youth through our Air Canada Foundation Opens in New Window .

  2. We also sponsor local events or activities by non-profit organizations who contribute to your community's economic growth.

If you are seeking support and are an organization that focuses on children or on the economic well being of your community please apply online.

In addition to our charitable and economic programs Air Canada also supports a wide range of commercial events and activities including sports, arts and culture. Check our guidelines on these types of commercial sponsorships.

How to apply for support

Each year, Air Canada, including Air Canada Express (operated by Jazz only), receives thousands of requests for support. In order to streamline the process and accelerate our response time, we have implemented a mandatory online application system for all donation requests by community organizations like yours.
